Italian term or phrase: risvolti biografici
Hi,

I'm translating a quote from a book on Vatican II; the phrase in question seems to say that some theologians imitated or undertook actions that mirrored or reflected the contemporary thought and mentality in their daily lives. Is there a shorter or clearer way to say this? Here is the quote:

"I “nuovi teologi”, attivamente presenti nel rifacimento finale del testo, sapevano perfettamente che la corruzione in senso protestantico delle fonti della Rivelazione, sancita da un Concilio Ecumenico anche solo pastorale, sarebbe fatalmente penetrata nelle Università Pontificie e nei Seminari, corrompendo alla fine la fede dei sacerdoti e dei credenti, sì da farle subire senza più alcuna difesa l’assalto del pensiero e della mentalità contemporanei, dei quali essi erano ammiratori e discepoli (alcuni di loro sin nei ***risvolti biografici***)."

my attempt so far: "(some of them even reflecting this admiration in their day-to-day actions)".

Thank you!

Peter
